Toney Woodroe "Woody" Weatherman (born July 29, 1965) is an American musician and songwriter, best known as the lead guitarist of heavy metal band Corrosion of Conformity.

Career[edit]

Weatherman was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and now lives in Virginia. He started Corrosion of Conformity with Mike Dean and Reed Mullin in 1982 where they began as a hardcore punk and crossover thrash band, but later transformed to a more stoner sludge sound with the addition of Pepper Keenan in 1989. They reformed without Keenan as a three-piece consisting of the original founding members in 2010. However, Keenan returned in 2015.

Weatherman also played bass guitar in the Raleigh-based band No Labels with Reed Mullin, Ricky Hicks, and Wayne Kerr. They formed in February 1982 and faded away during 1984.

He played on the 1989 Snake Nation album along with Corrosion of Conformity bassist Mike Dean and artist Brian Walsby.[1]
